LIMA | La Lucha Sanguchería Criolla is a popular chain in Peru (and recently other countries in Latin America) that specialises in the humble Peruvian sandwich the “La Lucha”. They’ve only been around for about 10 years and in that time have become one of the most popular sandwich spots in Peru due to their quality product, consistency across locations, and often very generous (sometimes 24/7) hours.
When we first visited La Lucha Sanguchería Criolla we met a customer who had been coming since the beginning who told us that despite their expansion, the sandwiches are as good as ever. We can’t speak to that fact, but what we can say with confidence is that the sandwiches here are awesome.
There are 17 different sandwiches on the menu, you can choose from pork, chicken, and beef. Ingredients are super fresh, and bread is made and baked on site. You can’t go wrong with any option but the best, and most popular is the chicharrón – fried pork belly with creole potatoes and salsa. And do make sure you go for the optional egg and cheese, it elevates the sandwich to one of the best you’ve ever had.
If you’re thirsty, check out the native fruit juices and granitas made using fruits like lúcuma, mango and guanabana.
